Greetings, glorious adventurers! If you're joining in our Alpha One spot testing, please follow the steps here to see all the latest test info on our forums and Discord!

Name a feature from a previous MMO you'd love to see in ashes.

I enjoyed weapon proficiency. More you use the better you are with them. I'm not gonna advertise other games.

    I can't remember any mmo that we've played where "falling from great heights" wasn't at least one of your reasons for dying.

    Most likely because accidentally pressing caps when mashing buttons 
  • Transmogrification in Wow. I want to change the appearance of your armor and weapons. 
  • *Thinks to self*

    Forum 'confusion' button would be excellent idea.....

    @Megs   This isn't a suggestion post. It's a discussion so people can discuss what they like. If someone sees an idea they love they can go suggest. 

    Engaging people to talk about the game. 
  • gyrocopters for dwarves and orcs sieging by launching themselves beyond the walls with catapults!

    Joking, joking... probably.

    That'd be from warhammer: age of reckoning? :D

    That would be from Warhammer Online, though I clearly remember gyrocopters as a mean of transportation, I don't remember any orc flying around (sadly). 

    Though flying orcs appeared in one of the cinematic trailers so... I guess it counts? :smiley:

    Being able to change your gears appearance
    Fast travelling, for example: flight paths, or teleport points we have to activate ourselves.
    Skill points, talent trees, stat points.  
    Skill levels, able to level up skills from 1-10 etc.
    Optional auto-flag PvP zones, able to be quested in (like Cyrodiil) but not mandatory for progression.
    Repair NPCs 1 per zone at least, otherwise a lot of people won't play the game.
    Constant GM presence in the game.. To auto ban bots and gold spammers.
    A lot more, but this is turning into an essay :P
  • Ah, sorry, I correct myself: yes it was possible to launch oneself with a catapult, but only along some questlines, so the launches were all perfect... something that ruins the thing a little bit  :p

    Since there are kickstarter weapon and armor skins. I guess that indirectly means that gear appearance changing's gonna be in the game! 
  • Being able to compose and play music.

    EQ2 for sure had Safefall as part of some racials, on pieces of gear, and totems/potions.
  • Being able to create by diging. structurally stabalizing tunnels from wood resources, create steps and catwalks for your own mine to later become a dungeon..

    Working in progress design from Chronicles of Eliera *sic
  • I would like Appearance Slots for gear instead of Transmogrification.  This is from EQ2.
  • From EQ1 back in the first year or 2, there were GM events!  Admittedly, when a GM did spawn in as a fightable/killable creature, it did turn into a dogpile type event.  I understand that Ashes is trying to be more dynamic on its own and through player action mainly, but a nice unexpected attack by a living person can be much fun!

  • 1) Puzzles (including jumping puzzles)

    2) Primary class-specific lore and quests

    3) Transmog'ing

    4) A wardrobe that lets you save transmog sets and/or skill builds and/or equipment sets

    5) Solo-able world events that require exploration to trigger (e.g., stumble across a temple and pull a lever that starts an event that you can finish without getting facerolled by a mob requiring a large group)

    6) A functioning economy (shakes finger angrily at GW2) - seems like they've got this one covered already

    7) Zone-specific music!!! Some of my fondest gaming memories are hanging out in Ashenvale (WoW), and the unique and beautiful music is really what set the scene
  • Pack Dolls from Ashron's Call. 
    Fishing from Ultima Online
    Collections from Everquest 2 (though I would like it for bone quests they remember to add all of them to the world) 
  • I agree with OP on weapon proficiency.

    And they already have confirmed ocean content which is something im stoked for.


  • Being able to post your stats like from Path of Exile; extract a web address/code that is secure and provides a character profile! View-able by others.
